I know this has been mentioned before but would just like to boost the idea of allowing users to implement custom styling via CSS. I sometimes write content in HTML and render it via the formula field. I’d love to be able to change the fonts, colours, etc of this content. It would transform the way my extensions match our branding, etc.
Hi Chris, you’re looking for CSS formatting of that custom HTML only, right? As in, you’re not trying to change the styling of miniExtensions’ components, you’re just trying to change the styling of your components that you’re creating with the custom HTML?
Yeah - Kinda. I’m learning more about this as I experiment and become more proficient at using HTML.
I have now learned that I can use HTML to change the styling of components with HTML (e.g. font, background, colours, etc). However, I’d love to be able to change the styling of other aspects of my extensions.
As an example - Yesterday I was working on a form. I used a formula field as the header of my form and added html which changed the background colour. However, the next field was a long-text field and for this I was unable to change the colour of the background. This means that for forms, I’m kinda forced to stick with a white background.
The thing I’m trying to achieve here is to improve the styling of the forms to a point where I no longer feel the need to use Typeform as a front end for forms. I feel like the miniextensions offering here is SO CLOSE but still not quite there.
Does all this make sense?
Hi @chrisclaynz, just to clarify, do you want to modify the appearance of the form fields themselves, rather than just changing the HTML content through a formula field? If that’s the case, please let us know what specific styling you need from miniExtensions. You mentioned font, background color, and font color.
Yeah that’s right- I want to change the appearance of the form fields themselves.
As a minimum, being able to change the background colour using hex numbers (RGB) would be excellent.
It would also be great to be able to change the font to the usual suspects such as Ariel.
Hi @chrisclaynz. Before creating a ticket for your request, I would like to clarify some details first. Are you referring to background color inside the field or is it the form background? A sample screenshot would be helpful to make sure addressing your request correctly. Please also provide the color that you want to use.
I’m talking about the background colour inside the field. Ideally, I would like to change the background colour of the form field in the same way I can change the background of a html enabled formula field.
